Let the Celebrating End!

It's been a full week of celebrating, starting with John turning 70 Monday and ending with my 60th birthday today. Sewing has been on the back burner. I did get out this piece I did in a "Convergence" quilt class in Madison, WI, almost 2 years ago to begin quilting it. So far the quilting is a mixture of straight lines with a walking foot and free motion work. Click on the picture for some of the details. I think I will stipple the borders - great way to practice free-motion work. Because I didn't choose these fabrics and probably won't hang this piece, I feel free to take some risks and try some thread work.

It's nice to have birthdays, but it's also nice to have them over with and get back to normal!

Happy double Birthdays.

But I have to disagree about your piece ... I LOVE it. If you're not married to it hey I'll take it off your hands (perfect for my house). OR a giveaway.

Congrats on the 70th and 60th.

A very nice birthday week photo. I wish you both many years of joy and may you pursue your interests in excellent health.
